This study interviewed eleven Taiwanese mothers who have adolescents. From those mothers' life histories,e intended to understand the structure of maternal love and its influential sources. Maternal love is divided into internal and externalaternal love. This study has found that external aspects of maternal love are not only influenced by internal aspects of maternal love, but also� by the other mothers' inner and outer factors. On the other side, children's ability to interpret how their mothers express maternal love, the rivalry among siblings, or children's own life experience may have impacts on children's perceptions of maternal love.
